UPDATE 10/07/16 The PCIE riser cable that came with the case cause weird bugs. Sometimes the computer wouldn't boot, and then I couldn't play any games without any artifacts and eventual crashes. It would also start buzzing at times!
After reading other similar stories I decided to buy another cable from EZDIY on Amazon, and presto, computer works perfectly again. Just played for an hour with no crashes or artifacts on screen.
The install was a bit tricky since the mounting points don't match up to the bracket, so I screwed in the rear mount of the riser cable to the case and for the front I used a zip-tie to tighten it place, it's holding steady.
It sucked that I had to spend more money to get something that is a big selling point for this case to work as intended..... The case still nice though.
Since my first build with this hardware I have gone through 3 cases, and third times a charm. I'm really happy how things came out. I forgot how much I love the SP120 quiet edition fans, the pc is near silent with all the fans at a fixed 1250rpm set in the corsair link software.
Most of the components are at least a year old, and when I decide to upgrade the gpu and cpu, I plan to do a custom water loop with hard line tubing and white coolant. Till then, this came out better than expected.
Biggest gripe with the case right now is the PCIE ribbon cable. From time to time the pc won't boot unless I disconnect and connect the ribbon again. I was able to game as normal once the PC is on, and was able to get to the same core clock as before with my overclock. I went ahead and ordered a new riser cable on Amazon from EZDIY, and hopefully that fixes the Riser cable bugs I have.
